Could There Ever Be A Legal Use For This Licence Plate Flipper?

You might think that licence plate flippers are only used by secret agents and other movie anti-heroes who need a quick getaway, but apparently you can buy them in real life — and not just for nefarious purposes.

The most obvious application for this $US445 self-installed kit of dubious ethicality is to avoid cameras used on toll roads or at red lights. But its creator claims it’s actually designed as an easy way to keep your plates clean when you’re off-roading, or to protect your identity when showing off your whip at a car show. Because you never know when you suddenly might find yourself in either situation, and need to be able to disguise your plates in less than two seconds. [License Plate Flipper via BoingBoing]
